and say mitt romney became the tea party. >> that's right. he has adopted the agenda fully. the ryan budget has gotten a lot of at attention, but a lot of other items that they have been passing really reveal what the agenda is. restricting women's right to get an abortion even if they are dying or have been raped. allowing people to carry concealed weapons even if they are drunk. >> eliot: it is shocking when you look at it and it is the todd akin social agenda republican party. even though everybody pretended to recoil in shock when todd akin made his horrific comments they went on to embrace his agenda. what me taste sized against mitt romney was he didn't have the forty tuesday to say no i'm not going there. >> yes. and they tried over and over again, they ran one candidate up the flag pole after another. is >> eliot: when you look back at bill clinton who we look at as one of the great politicians of the past 30 or 40 years, his sister soldier moment was when he went to the base and said i disagree with you about this. it showed a certain force of character
ahead of mitt romney. you heard that right, george w. bush is more popular than mitt romney. and some republicans are blaming the campaign's problem on the candidate himself. an anonymous romney organization top member was quoted as saying . . . and a top washington republican . . . turning to the latest swing state polls. a survey has likely voters in new hampshire backing the president a 50 to 45%. new hampshire voters also give the president a 7-point edge. in virginia the president is leading mitt romney again by two points, as does suffolk university and d.c. 12 poll. while the nevada virginia and colorado races are close, mitt romney chose to campaign today in pennsylvania. he told the crowd at the military academy. >> romney: i want to take that big cloud off of the small business world that is hang over them. three-quarters say they don't want to hire more people because of obamacare.

it right. he said the strategy was effective in the short-term vulnerable in the long term. romney gave a good performance, the problem is none of it was rooted in fact. he told the debate medicare is -- mr. etch-a-sketch said that was wrong. the romney camp had to send someone in the spin room right after the debate to say, well he can't really do that. as for taxed obama appeared to be caught off guard by the statement that his plan wouldn't increase taxes. much of romney's performance was rooted in deception from his very first answer when he tried to disown his tax program, and then finally he is unable to deem regulation he would keep -- he has been saying for how long he would repeal dodd-frank. and suddenly just because he said it, oh no you have to have regulation -- [ cuckoo clock chimes ] >> stephanie: unbelievable. paul tonko, good morning, congressman. >> good morning, stephanie. how are you. it's great to join you and your listeners. >> stephanie: you too. it was great to see you at the dnc. it really is stunning to try to fact check romney, right? >>
stay on taxes -- >> romney: right. >> what is the difference? >> romney: virtually everything he said about my tax plan was inaccurate. i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. what i said is i won't put in place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. that's part one. no economist can say mitt romney's plan adds $5 trillion when i say i will not add to the tax plan. number two, i got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but just keep repeating it and ultimately hoping i will believe it. but that is not the case. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income americans. and number 3, i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle income families. i will lower the tax on middle income families. i saw a study that came out today that said that you are going to raise taxes by 3 to $4,000 on middle income families. throw all of these studies out there. but let's get to the bottom line. i want to bring the rates down at the same time lower deductions and exd exemptions and small business pace that individual rate. 54% of americ
on energy and education on the right way to fix the deficit. romney's approach is the wrong approach on taxes on deficit on wall street reform, on medicare and healthcare. >> eliot: on "good morning america," comedian jon stewart said he tried the same strategy in an upcoming debate with bile o'reilly. >> strategy that obama took, it is the rope-a-dope but instead of letting your opponent punch himself out you just get beat up. >> eliot: ouch. piling insult on top of self-inflicted injury, john sununu told msnbc's andrea mitchell -- >> what people saw last night i think, was a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is. >> did you really mean to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy? >> he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> eliot: wow. asked if sununu's comments had overtones, it seems that way. obama's senior adviser david axelrod thinks romney's say what works strategy will ultimately work against him. >> eliot: which had better mean
on the interweb. >> it is an ad. >> john: it is smart. mitt romney walked right into this trap. mitt romney was trying so hard not to be thurston howell iii. i think he's more like charles winchester of m.a.s.h. he reminds me a lot more of charles emerson winchester trying to be cool with hawkeye and b.j. in the still. i think we have audio from mitt from yesterday. >> romney: it is not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself. it is about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> john: we know his pathway would choose the paul ryan budget which cuts taxes for millionaires and tries to balance the budget by cutting taxes 20% across the board. when you think about the wealthy, they've had it tough for a long time. it has been pretty tough to be a millionaire since 2001. the rich have been doing very poorly. what they need is a 20% across the board tax cut. and let's have less r
criticize him from the right. >> what would you like to say to mr. romney. >> obama: good luck tonight. >> no, really. >> obama: really. >> cenk: now, that was during the republican primaries when mitt romney was about to go to debates. but that could be say going into the debate with. we have michael shure and senior editor for the "new republic." i want to run this by you. it looks like romney is in a big load of trouble when it comes do the debates because he does not have much room to attack president obama. am i seeing this wrong? >> no, i think you're right. if i had one major strategic criticism of the romney campaign, they never migrated to the middle of the spectrum. ever since he had to move rights during the primaryies to offset challenges from newt gringrich and rick perry he maintained the base but it's mystifying that he never moved center. i agree with you the guy has boxed himself in on the far right political spectrum, and it's not the place you want to be with a month before the election day. >> cenk: i think moam made a good point the whole idea was that he was more

in their sails this morning right? they had just about given up on romney before last night. they needed -- they really needed romney to do well last night. otherwise, they would have just folded their tent. unfortunately, they got the boost last night that they needed. because romney did breathe new life into the campaign. now for the next week, right it's going to be oh, my god, oh, my god, we gotta bounce now. we didn't get a bounce out of paul ryan or tampa but now yeah romney proved he's up to the task. he showed that he's capable of holding his own against president obama and this is going to re-energize the republicans. just when we had them down for the count we let them back up. off the canvas. should never have done it. should never have let it happened. all right. more calls coming up and we'll talk to reporter from the hill, niles standage in the next segment here of the "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>and now to my point. that is a whole bunch of bunk! the powerful my stea
't help thinking about what's going on with mitt romney right now, mitt romney running for president and for most of his campaign been talking about one single issue the economy the economy, the economy. >> i think president obama is talking about something else that's bigger, leadership. mitt romney hasn't been talking about leadership. the thing that happens in these debates is do they give us a moment, do they give us one particular moment where we know that the argument for this candidate is working or the argument against this candidate is working. there were big moments over the last 40-50 years of televised debates. john kennedy and richard nixon how nixon loft because he didn't wear make up and looked like he didn't shave. they thought he was dark and smarmy. turns out they were right, he was. >> whether was the al gore sigh, over and over again.

the debate is going to be on right? on the economy. now the romney memo says that mitt romney will champion manufacturing jobs and bring them back to our shores and it also says that america has lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs under the president's watch. now mitt romney clearly plans to go after the president on the jobs record, but here is the truth. president obama has the longest stretch of manufacturing job gains -- get this wait for it -- in almost two decades. since 2000 when president bush came into office, the manufacturing sector went into a steep slide, but since 2010, that slide has turned around. the president has record on manufacturing jobs since president clinton. and he noted as much during his dnc speech. >> and after a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. >> jennifer: now in polititfacts rated that statement by president clinton as true. mitt romney's own plan would cost 800,000 u.s. jobs according to the study for american progress. the corporate tax cuts would cost the u.s

[ cheers ] >> obama: no, no, governor romney, he is a good debater. i'm just okay. >> consider your expectations lowered. >> stephanie: all right. >> how low can you go? >> stephanie: karen in virginia you are on the "stephanie miller show." hi karen. >> hi, miss stephanie. how are you. >> stephanie: good. okay. >> caller: it is pouring down rain here in virginia. cantor's tears because wayne powell came out swinging in that debate. ♪ let's hear it for the boy ♪
